Day 29 from France:
Apple Juice Rocks

Shaboom sends us her update from Paris...

Obsessed! served me breakfast in bed but I didn't have time to eat it - frenchie tater tots, bacon and an egg, yogurt, tea. I ate the bacon and egg in a rush.

I rushed out to meet Goddess at Gare du Nord at 1:15pm - lots of stairs. Goddess was on a 3-hour break from work and wanted to tell me all about this job that she had referred me for. The boss lady called me that morning and requested I come in for an interview that afternoon. Goddess's boss said she would call with the details but then I never heard from her again. That seems very French...

Goddess and I hung out in Parc de Bercy.

I went to Cour Saint Emilion to find a good movie to watch.

It's Printemps du Cinéma but I couldn't decide on a movie that fit into my schedule.

So I went to Place Monge and Rue Mouffetard in the 5th arrondissement.

My feet hurt so much due to the friction in my heeled sandals, I had to buy flat shoes. I have gotten so used to heeled boots during the winter, I have to now get back into the habit of not wearing socks.

For dinner, I ate 2 pain au chocolat, an apple juice and a Belgian coconut chocolate bar in the Jardin de Luxembourg while studying lyrics for our upcoming choral concert in association with the Mairie de Paris.

7pm - Rue des Irlandaises - rehearsal

There's yet another transpo strike that started at 10pm so I rushed out of rehearsal to catch the train home.

Snack - salad & Frenchie tater tots with dijonaise

Lots of stairs and walking today. 20 kilometers? 25?
Two hours indoor cardio. Yay for Obsessed!


  1. You walked 20 kilometers???? Holy cow!!! That's about 12 miles!!!
    But then there's Frenchie tater tots........
    How did Obsessed! make those tots?

  2. Those tater tots sound divine, yes, please let us know the fabulous recipe if you will. Sorry to hear about your feet and having to buy flats, I have been there before too! Beautiful pictures, and my you did do a lot of walking!!!!

  3. I've seen Obsessed! make the tots a couple of times. Looks like he shreds the tater into a blind submission (I'm talking pulverized) before he drains and squeezes all the juice out of the tater dust. Once he squeezes it dry, he takes it out of the colander and puts it in a bowl where he adds a few spoonfuls of flour, salt and pepper to taste. Sometimes he adds chopped onion. PS - you can also use seasoning salt.

    Once he's formed the tater balls, he fries them in oil in a pan on the stove. I'm assuming that if you have cholesterol issues that you can just as easily put them on a cookie sheet in the oven until golden brown. But oil is better.

  4. GORGEOUS!!!

    Happy Friday! Have a great weekend! :)
